Re: Just joined

Earl - For the continuing RLS do you think you could try this with Edith sitting on a suitable height chair - I would sometimes fill a bucket with cold cold water (even adding ice from the freezer to help it along) and put both lower legs into it, or one leg at a time if easier for you both, splashi...

Re: Dipyridamole

I agree with you regarding the exhaustion of lack of sleep - for many years I have worked on 3 - 4 hours nightly. I also understand that although we know there is a benefit to pacing any changes....

Re: Dipyridamole

Last night's dosage worked not too badly when reducing from 375mg to 225mg. Well done.
